In the private account option you will have the option to keep it private or public, that is, toggle it on or off.

Make your Instagram account public and increase your followers

One of the first strategies is Engagement, or impact on accounts, basically if you have more likes, if you have some interaction with people, if they review your publications and increase the organic reach.


When Instagram detects that you have more Engagement, will recommend your profile more, a magnifying glass will appear at the bottom of your open Instagram account and there you will discover many accounts, and that is where you need to bring up your account.

It is advisable to publish constantly, at least every other day. You also have to respond to comments they do, use #hashtags when posting a photograph, in the end a hashtag is a filter, it is recommended to use three to four filters.
